Simple math equation brings about my buyer's question. I'm semi-frustrated by the lack of C2D in the MBP, but it get me thinking that I, perhaps, shouldn't be too frustrated that it doesn't have it yet since the iMac already does. I'd say I would overall use my computer 70% desktop vs. 30% portable, so I suppose my laptop does not have to be bursting from the seams with power. I mainly want to make the plunge into Apple and OSX because of its highly touted video editing and photo management abilities, those being my two main reasons along with general college-related work. Has anyone else out there went for a souped-up iMac and bought a light portable [possibly refurbished] MacBook to get their respectable jobs done? There are pros and cons I need for both desktop and portable, and instead of getting the best of both worlds in one big 'ol MBP, why not go this way? Input is certainly appreciated.
